Why Iheanacho Missed Last Two Games

Leicester City assistant coach Chris Davies has revealed the reason behind Kelechi Iheanacho’s failure to make the bench in the club’s last two matches, reports

Iheanacho who is largely regarded as Jamie Vardy’s back-up is yet to make an appearance for the Foxes this season.

He has also missed out on the matchday squad in each of the Leicester City’s last two outings after making the bench in the first two league games.

“[There is no] No reason. We try and balance the bench the best we can. Kel has been working well in training, there are no issues at all,” Davies told when asked about Iheanacho’s failure to make the matchday squad in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup win against Newcastle United.

“It’s just a case of recently, we have had Demarai Gray on the bench instead of Kel.

“He [Gray] is a multi-functional attacking player who can play out wide and up front.

“We also have Ayoze [Perez] who can play up front, so we just felt the balance that we have, it was better to stick with what we did on the weekend.”
